Kyle, I can tell that your lights have gotten dim like mine did. Your plants definitely like them too
my replacement lights came in today. I am going to try and find a way to 100% seal them up. I thought about using flowable silicone since it is thin like pancake syrup versus the stiff putty regular waterproof silicone.
Anyone have any updates on their tanks? Here is the latest I have from about a month ago. Plants are doing well and I have since added in floating plants. I had to switch back to my OEM lights due to moisture wreaking havoc on the strips.
I have not gone back and installed the replacement strips yet. I have been thinking about the one's that tekkguy installed since they are already fully water proof. Hopefully soon I will get the lighting thing figured out once and for all.
im looking at the leds tekkguy posted. im wondering how you wire it up? I see there are positive and negative on both sides. and then I guess a ps would have a positive and neg. how do you connect it all? could someone draw a simple diagram pls.
sorry im an electric idiot. any help would be appreciated.
if i had to guess id say its wired in parallel. just connect one end to pos and neg of ps. on the other end of the led string is pos and neg. just insulate the pos and neg seperately? i dont know. lol...
the ones that tekkguy posted are already wired together. The only thing needed is the PS and it's just like you said pos to pos and neg to neg. Just make sure it's 12V DC and at least 1 amp or 1000mA output.
